Considering how old the game is that really does not say much. But it sold better than most evergreen titles from Nintendo, so that's pretty decent.

Yeah. Even combined, the other versions are probably somewhere in the hundreds and the Switch launch somewhere in the thousands.

Nah, it's the UK 4 years on, no way is it selling in the hundreds and there is also no way they are using this spin on the prior week if there was a switcher hype bump.

Is Rig Fit Adventure going to become the best selling fitness game of this generation? There's not that much competition in the genre since the Wii days...

That is the cheapest way I've ever seen of spinning mediocre sales numbers.
